The Troy Howard Middle School went to the Common Ground Fair on September 21st . There we won lots of Blue, Red, and Yellow ribbons. We won 27 blue ribbons, for first prize. 29 red ribbons, second prize, and 16 yellow ribbons, third prize. We had a pumpkin that won first prize that weighed in at about 47 pounds. There was also one of our flowers that won first prize. The flower was the Artichoke flower. To get your vegetables and flowers judged you have to drop them off at the judges cabin. Before we left the fair we went back to see how many ribbons we won and saw what places our vegetables and flowers got judged at, then you can take all your stuff back home. Or in our case back to school. The Troy Howard school won a total of 72 ribbons this year.
